SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Sheboygan museum is hosting an exhibit of awkward moments.

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is featuring 51 photos accumulated through the popular website awkwardfamilyphotos.com. It’s the first time the collection is being shown in a museum setting.

Childhood friends Mike Bender and Doug Chernack launched the website in May 2009, after Bender saw an awkward vacation photo in his parents’ house. They knew there were probably other awkward family images out there so they created the site.

Within a week, the site was receiving millions of visitors a day and thousands of submissions from around the world.

Visitors to the exhibit can also share their own family photos and stories for a chance to win prizes. It runs through Oct. 27.
